Trump Might Be Charged With Inciting A Riot By North Carolina Police

UPDATE: 3:03 PM EST

According to WRAL, police in North Carolina are reportedly considering charging Donald Trump with “incitement of violence” after a rally there last week where a man was sucker punched by a supporter of the Republican front runner.

From WRAL:

“During the rally in Fayetteville, a protester was assaulted as he was escorted from Crown Coliseum by police. A Linden man was later charged in the incident, and Cumberland County Sheriff’s Office investigators said Monday that they are considering filing a charge of inciting a riot against Trump.”

The Daily Beast is reporting however that the local authorities are not planning on charging Trump and if they believed they had enough evidence to warrant a charge of “inciting a riot” then they would have charged him already.

This is breaking news. We’ll update this story as more information comes in.
